Bluebells

If you haven’t already realised, we absolutely love taking photos and seeing how much TJ has changed over the years. We hardly notice the difference in him from day to day which is why we have certain family traditions when it comes to capturing photos.

One of our traditions is making sure we always visit a bluebell wood as soon as they come out in bloom.

Our first visit was when TJ was about 2 months old. We dressed him up in his little bear suit to take some photos – I’m not sure he was overly impressed but we thought he looked super cute!

Pumpkin Picking – An annual tradition. 

Ever since TJ was little, it has been a family tradition of ours to go pumpkin picking at Halloween rather than just buying pumpkins from a supermarket.

When we lived in London, we found this amazing pumpkin farm in Hooe near Rochester. We first took TJ when he was about 18 months old and we had a great time collecting pumpkins of all shapes and sizes.

Snow and Sunset – what an amazing weekend away

This weekend we booked to go to the Brecon Beacons to celebrate my birthday. In light of recent events (Our Happy Place), we very nearly cancelled it but decided a change of scene would do us the world of good.

Home Life Project – January 2017

One of our New Year Resolutions was to try to keep more of a record of our daily life – the little things that make you smile and the things that sometimes get lost in the hussle and bussle of the daily routines. We have been following Maybush Studio for a while on Twitter and Instagram and have often considered joining in with the Home Life Project but have never quite got round to it.  We decided that this month would be different and hopefully we will be able to continue to link up throughout the year.

If you’ve read our blog before, you’ll know that we love crafting or “making” as TJ calls it. On Saturday morning, we took our trip to the Dorset Scrapstore but due to a birthday party, we didn’t have time to look at our haul and promised TJ that we would look at it on Sunday morning. Our 5:55am wake up call meant that he must have been dreaming about “making” all night  so that was the first activity of the day.
